2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

Food and service was well below average and prices were rather high for pub food!

“Best Restaurant in Region for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We had lunch here in April during the school holidays. There is an excellent set-up for young children with an indoor playground (similar to the type you find at McDonalds). There was also a face painter who did an excellent job turning our four year old cheeky boy into Spider Man.

The food was great quality and the prices are very reasonable (kids meals $5.50, adults ~$15). Our party included two children, a teenager and four adults. With drinks and meals our total cost was under $150 with healthy serves, cold beer and good wine. Next time we're back in the area we will definitely be going back.
